My Musings

the most amazingly inspirational quote ever

Watching old episodes of Grey’s Anatomy (Series 1 Episode 6) on Netflix brought me to what I believe is the most amazingly inspirational quote ever IMHO

“The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still, sometimes, we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug, until we can’t anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves, what Benjamin Franklin meant: That knowing, is better than wondering. That waking, is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst, most intractable mistake, beats the hell out of never trying

Everything must be done in our own time, in our own way, even if people believe we should do things differently.

No matter how hard to control or deal with a mistake may be at least I can say I gave it a go. I decided to have at it!

My Pen and I spend a lot of time together. Its my happy place when life isn't. Now that I am an empty nester my goal is to spend more time focusing on just me. My health. My fitness. My plans and my desire for adventure. At 54, I write about my journey towards rediscovering my zest for life in midlife. In Jan 2020 I started a new business. I create and sell notebooks via Amazon (Pen and I Publishing).
